There is no minimum or maximum for the post, but around 500 words is recommended. Be yourself! Be creative! We want your personality and your passion to shine through.
The award is $2000: $500 as a personal reward for the work you've already done, $1000 for supporting a new initiative that promotes peace through space, and $500 towards travel costs to attend SpaceVision 2015 in Boston, Massachusetts.
